In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1967 championship season, the St. Louis Cardinals will honor 14 former team members in a pregame ceremony before Wednesday's 7:15 p.m. game against the club's '67 World Series opponent, the Boston Red Sox.
The ceremony will begin at 6:35 p.m. with an appearance from the famed Budweiser Clydesdales. Members from the 1967 team will then be introduced via a Ford motorcade, which will parade them along the warning track from right field to the inaugural Commissioner's Trophy situated at home plate. Scheduled to appear from the 1967 squad are Red Schoendienst, Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Tim McCarver, Mike Shannon, Orlando Cepeda, Steve Carlton, Dick Hughes, Julian Javier, Ray Washburn, Larry Jaster, Bobby Tolan, Ed Spiezio and Ted Savage.
Both the Cardinals and the Red Sox will commemorate the 50th anniversary of their Fall Classic matchup by wearing 1967 throwback uniforms. The Cardinals' jerseys and caps will also include a special 50th anniversary patch. Select Cardinals game-used uniform sets (jersey, pants and cap) will be available for purchase from the Cardinals Authentics Shop the following day. Fans interested in purchasing the uniform sets can call 314-345-9851 or email email@example.com.
Additionally, the first 30,000 fans, ages 16 and older, will receive a replica 1967 World Series Championship Mystery Ring, presented by Ameren Missouri. Fans will receive a ring bearing the name of one of five different Cardinals players from the 1967 World Series (Brock, Cepeda, Gibson, McCarver or Shannon).
FOX Sports Midwest will televise the pregame ceremony live to fans throughout the region beginning at 6:00 p.m. CT. The pregame ceremony will also be streamed live on FOX Sports GO, available to customers of participating pay-TV providers.
